by threatening to withold key auto parts from reaching gm's assembly line. "the hedge fund held up steering columns and other things that had gm not gotten them, they would've gone under. chrysler as well." "they were literally willing to risk the survival of gm to make as much money as they could." steven rattner, former counselor to the treasury during the bailout period, called it "extortion demands by barbary pirates." palast says delphi relocated parts plants in china and emerged from bankruptcy, going public last year. the company, purchased by the romneys' hedge fund at 67 cents per share in 2009, sold for $22 a share at the ipo - a 3,000% profit for investors like the romneys. a return largely the result of the auto bailout that romney so publically opposes. "it further solidifies the democrats' and labor's picture of romney as out-of-touch and more interested in personal wealth creation than job creation." with the presidential election less than a week away, the coalition of union and good government groups is urging the office of government ethics to act now to ensure mitt romney
, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. see what's new from campbell's. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can he
ge, gm, wal-mart, all that. and then he got small business, but it's the small and growing. it's sickening that were small and can challenge the date and what happens in the big tree falls over. again, the amazing thing is new trees grow right out of the old trees. that is a metaphor, but it's real. because i'm really something big in the economy, it's vital we know how to reconfigure resources and create some new out of it. so do we need control? we need feed back. we need the capabilities to repurpose. in this country, we need to build a robust platform for people to realize what they have inside of them. that's why people came to this country and that's why people here look for a better future that will be like the better future that their ancestors looked to when they came. so you know, i would say yes, you know, we need control, but we need controls. all kinds of interdependencies, all kinds of self regulations and ways of understanding what's happening, what's working, what's not and what gets us to the endpoint, which is betterment of human lives. it's not gdp. if that i
what was happening. all of us in the auto industry were looking at gm and chrysler. we sought to companies on the verge offailure that were going to take down the entire supplier industry. we also saw an industry that had to be restructured. bill ford is my hero. he fired in self. they put forward in a good place, so they did not have to be rescued. they laid out a map for what had to be done, and everybody had to sacrifice. neil: and the end justifies it because things are back. and is starting with president bush. i'm not criticizing, but it did not lead to a slippery slope. >> once again, the difference between this was, this was not a bailout. a bailout is when you give money to the existing guys. restructuring. the key thing that obama did -- neil: the, the bankruptcy and restructuring. >> but the restructuring was driven by the president's team. a bankruptcy court would never have done that by itself, and it is the reason i don't like the mitt romney passive approach, just turn over to the courts. it would not have moved fast enough. it would not have taken the action t
, and profits were down 12% on a year ago. >> now gm is blaming its performance in europe for those results. it is planning to cut 2600 jobs to try to jumpstart its performance here. workers at opel, gm's german subsidiary, could be the first to go. >> opel's plant employs about five dozen people, and all of them could soon be out of a job. the assembly line produces the opel safira, which will go out of production opel in 2016 production -- out of production in 2016. opel lost just under 200 million euros in the first quarter of 2012. the downhill slide continued in the second quarter. in the third quarter, opel fell short by almost 370 million euros. industry analysts think gm could soon put its foot on the break. opel is a big obstacle to their plans to roar back. >> good news for germany -- projections said the company will collect its highest tax revenues ever this year. the federal government as well as states and municipalities are said to take in a total of 602.4 billion euros, which beats earlier projections by almost 6 billion euros. the government says it will come close to balan

. that drew another company into the fact check, gm, which had been saved of course by the auto bailout. a gm spokesman telling the press, "we've clearly entered some parallel universe." also from gm, "at this stage we're looking at hubble telescope-like distances between campaign ads and reality." but here's the thing. it is one thing to lie about your record or even your opponent's record. but what mr. romney has done here is to lie about a third party. in that third party's back yard. and you can tell that mr. romney's ohio lie about jeep is not going to work in ohio in part because ohio voters follow the car industry like it's the local football team. the romney campaign's running these ads in youngstown, for example. take a look at the "youngstown vindicator." the kind of reporting they were doing back in july on a local plant. "i think part of this relates to our focus on quality and make sure parts are right so we don't pass problems further up the line," said somebody's cousin. here's the youngstown paper in august on a plant expanding. "good news would be welcomed at the plant where
about the other day. >> some gm numbers are expected in about an hour. gm is expected to earn 60 cents a share on revenue of $35.7 billion. gm, don't they have loss -- i mean, if they can't make money at this point, they ought to be able to because i don't think they have to pay taxes again. that's another way we sort of don't get our money out of gm. now we'll be watching facebook. about 230 million shares held by ples became employees became eligible for sale on sunday. >>> equity trading will try to get back to normal today after superstorm sandy forced the new york stock exchange and the nasdaq to wait out the storm and stay close from the last two days. if investors areomin back today, they may be wondering whether there's going to be extra volatility. ira harris joins us right now from the cme group in chicago. what's the sense you get? i've actually been surprised by how orderly all of this has been to date. >> it has been orderly, but i think that's because we've been taking our reads off of the european markets, which have held up pretty well. better than well. and where we ar
for gm. we used to say as gm goes, so goes janesville. we lost our plant. a lot of my friends from high school thought they could make a living for their families, they lost that. that livelihood is gone. i have a buddy that went from $25 an hour down to $9 an hour without benefits. we have got to help these people who are stuck in between, who are in the middle of their earning years when they are supposed to be building for their family, saving for their family, putting themselves on the path of pursuing their version of happiness, making the american dream realized for themselves and their kids. we have 46 job-training programs coming out of washington, spread across seven agencies. it is nothing but bureaucracy. the bureaucrats of the way, give people the ability to take this and get people the skills they need so they can get the jobs they want in the 21st century and have themselves back on the path to prosperity.

have gm and chrysler, their chief furious over this line of attack centered around the auto industry. i want to play what the president said today regarding the auto ads from the romney campaign. >> you have folks that work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried, asking, is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china? the reason they make these calls is because governor romney is running an ad that says so. except it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. >> and anne, in addition to not being truce, you see people in ohio taking it as cynical. they make people believe it's bad and horrible and somebody in china is about to take your job. >> that's the real risk for governor romney in running an ad like this, although obviously he had his reasons for doing so. the campaign obviously seeing ohio as does everyone as being it is lynchpin to be elected. anything he could do, if there are voters who are all right feeling skeptical of the auto bailout who might buy this, that's who this is targeted at. this is a fairly significant backlash, questioning of the fact
gm -- >> big fan of the show. >> fantastic. >> nets/knicks, their game is still on. no one can watch it but the game is on. >> what did you learn, mark? >> one of two things happen, either a public pollster will be embarrassed and humiliated or barack obama will be re-elected. >> all right, john, these are not the dwarfs you are looking for. that's a great line. thank you for that one, carl. what time is it? at this moment time for chuck and "the daily rundown. ." >>> the aftermath, dozens of lives lost, millions still without power. hundreds lose their homes in a horrible new york fire and millions more are dealing with damage, floods, and transportation trouble. the cleanup is under way but the shock is far from over even as the first signs of normalcy emerge. after monitoring the storms from the white house, the president is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the
president obama talk about today are gm's reaction to mitt romney and this ad that his campaign has been running. >> that's critical. >> it is critical. and local tv and local newspapers in this state, especially in the northern parts where president obama needs to do really well have been pounding mitt romney for that essentially false ad that has been debunked widely and now that chrysler and gm and their executives have come out against mitt romney, that's been a really big problem for mitt romney. >> and they're adding jobs, they're even adding jobs at the honda plant. in the end, will you both be watching the cleveland area, cuyahoga county on the list? >> and the columbus area where we are right now, which is one of the swing counties here. a very, very important. but the bottom line is turnout. if the obama/sherrod brown organization can bring out the vote, they can win this state. but, you know, a lot fewer people voted here in 2010 and the republicans ran the table in ohio. so unless some of those 2008 voters come out again, the ones who stayed home in 2010, obama could have som
